I check the soil. I bought a single about a month ago and it had a bloom. All I seem to be able to grow are nice leaves. My new single is starting to be a monster. I got 2 small plants too. i put them both in a one gallon plant so they would be full. They came in 4" pots. My double is a monster and it must be it's 3rd summer by now.
Ok how the heck did you get it to bloom? What are you feeding it and is it is full sun? Mine has to be a lsdt 3 years old and is a monster of leaves, I have it here in Cave Creek were it can gert very cold in the winter so I bring the pot in the winter.
I even bought another single tht came with a bloom so I know they can bloom but I don't know what I am doing wrong.HELP!!!
Mine Is planted in the ground and although it dies back almost all the way every winter I think that is okay because I believe it blooms on new growth. I'm trying to decide if I like it's fragrance because it's so overwhelming with all the Blooms right now.
I just planted a double in the ground right next to it.
It's not fair!!! You say the blooms come off the new growth? I may just trim the monsters. What are your temps? Perhaps it has just been to hot. How cold do you get in the winter? It may be too cold to put in the ground here in Cave Creek for me.
Were did you buy yours?
I moved them more in to the sun and I saw one lonely bloom on my single rangoon creeper! Now I can't find it any more since I moved it but perhaps I might get a few this year or I know for next year to put them in the full sun much sooner.
Yea!!!! I finally got my Rangoon Creeper to bloom. It s in a pot and needs to be moved up to a larger pot but I hope I can make it through the winter.
I moved the pot to get as much sun as I could give it and the animals still be kept away and feed it more. I also keeps better tabs if it need to have more water.
I'll post photos later.
I hope that it keep blooming but with cold weather coming I had to bring it inside. The pot was cracked so I put it into a larger pot, it was pretty root bound. I was surprised how much root growth there was. Now it's in it's new home with a grow light and somewhere I read they like chicken manure.
Now I have to try hunting up chicken manure...
